Is there any way to configure Thunderbird so that it would verify DKIM signatures of incoming mail, and show a status icon a bit like the HTTPS indicator in browsers?

I don't know why but @edmaster mentioned [plugin] (addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/dkim-headers) is in disabled state –  Yurij73 Dec 11 '12 at 19:40

The following extension verifies DKIM signatures: https://addons.mozilla.org/addon/dkim-verifier/

See this extension: https://github.com/axic/tb-dkim-headers

You may combine it with the Mnenhy extension to show the "Authentication-Results" header.

Can you expand your answer and add some details? –  studiohack Nov 1 '11 at 22:56
    
It seems that the first extension requires the MTA to add these headers, with all the problems of knowing whether to trust them or not. I don't get why that made it into the RFC; it's totally backwards. –  romkyns Nov 2 '11 at 14:37

The linked extension on github doesn't actually perform DKIM verification. It just assumes that somebody else (say, your mail server) has already performed DKIM verification and placed the result in a header. The extension merely exposes this as a column. –  Maxy-B Oct 24 '12 at 23:51
